Cancer is ruled by the Moon and reminds us to center back to ourselves and ground from within our deepest selves. Where in our experience do we find ourselves without a sense of belonging? Where do we find belonging? It is essential to find this spot and to nurture and care for it. This Full Moon will flourish with self-care so let's all take a little extra time for ourselves. With this Full Moon taking place right at the start of the year it is a perfect opportunity to reflect on the future and what this next year will bring.
What are you manifesting this next year? What forms of self-care are we in need of in the future? What type of inner work is on the horizon?
When thinking about this next lunar cycle or this next year, it is important to get clear about what our softest self is in need of at this time. When we start with our most delicate and innermost self and get those needs covered first, we are more likely going to be able to manifest bigger and later aims in the new year. It takes a solid foundation of our inner self to feel supported so that it can go on to support our plans and goals continually.
During this New Moon, it is also a great time to nest with ourself and with our home. Clean house both physical and emotional. Write an inventory and go through your closet. Rearrange your room or maybe re-do your kitchen. It is a great time to buy some special incense and candles for an epic bath time ritual. Whatever you do, make it about you and make it about your home, this includes your physical and emotional home.
The Full Moon is so crisp and bright with soft circles around it softening into the dark blue sky. The inner part of ourselves is so alive right now and is blending in with the surroundings. The watery quality of Cancer lets it blend in with all that is around it. Take this opportunity to soak up the new year. I am aware that this new year has no actual connection to a natural flow, but the amount of psychic awareness for this date makes it an important marker in time. During this Full Moon let us see this time for what it is, a time for self-care and self-reflection as we enter the next phase.
